The NewYork-Presbyterian Silverman Fellowship in Healthcare Innovation

Each year, we select one outstanding individual to be the Silverman Fellow. This Fellow joins the NYP Innovation Center's startup-like environment, receives careful mentorship, gains unprecedented access to Hospital operations, and connects with senior leadership. Through this experience, he or she learns to take ideas from concept to practice-changing product.

Previous Silverman Fellows have accomplished amazing feats, including creating multi-campus mobile applications, developing critical commercial partnerships, and leading the adoption of new technologies.
